At T-fal, we manufacture our cookware, so we know what it is made of and so we can ensure it is 100% toxin-free!
Wondering what our non-stick cookware does and does not contain?
Read below to find out how we guarantee a 100% toxin free non-stick coating.
OUR NON-STICK COATING DOES CONTAIN:
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), which is an inert biocompatible material specifically suited for food-related use and approved by public health authorities (FDA). Its safe-for-health credentials have been approved by European and international public health bodies (WHO, EFSA).
PTFE is what gives the our cookware its non-stick properties and it is 100% safe and totally harmless in case of ingestion. In fact, PTFE is so safe that it is frequently used in the medical profession to coat pacemakers and the tiny tubes made to replace arteries. It is also used for surgical procedures for the benefit of patients with severe kidney disease, and some joint prostheses are also partly coated with PTFE.
OUR NON-STICK COATING DOES NOT CONTAIN:
Soluble PFAS (PFOA, PFOS…),
This is tested regularly both internally and externally by independent laboratories. Our standards go beyond current REACH** regulation. We perform stricter and more frequent quality controls than required by food contact regulations.
